11/07/2017: F-22 receives fuel from a KC-10 during a refueling mission over Iraq, Oct. 27, 2017.
The F-22 possesses a sophisticated sensor suite allowing the pilot to track, identify, shoot and kill air-to-air threats before being detected.
It is on regular rotation now to CENCOM and is providing the kind of flexibility which a fifth generation aircraft can provide and enhancing the capabilities of the entire combat force.
Recently, Second Line of Defense visited Langley AFB and got on update on the F-22 and the evolution of the air combat force from the CO of the First Fighter Wing and we will publish this interview soon.
